The Boy Mom Manifesto at the end will not only inspire you but also make your heart swell.'Kate Merrick, author of Here, Now: Unearthing Peace and Presence in an Overconnected World ';Monica Swanson is the ultimate Boy Mom mentor. While her perspective on parenting is grounded in biblical wisdom, each chapter holds excellent practical tools for how to work out that wisdom on a daily basis in our homes. Of course, we know there aren't formulas that will ensure we get it all right, but we also know that gleaning wisdom from women who have gone before us (and are still in the trenches with us) is invaluable in the wonderful adventure of helping boys become all God created them to be.'Jeannie Cunnion, author of Mom Set Free
